Yard Spider (side view)
This should give folks a pretty good idea of just how large this sculpture is. The stone wall in the background is knee high. While there is some forced perspective involved you can imagine that this creature is roughly knee high also. I built the spider from branches off of a cedar tree that fell during a winter storm. I built the stone wall out of... well... um... stones.

I made this creature three years ago for Halloween and had no intention of keeping it around for so long. I was simply going to toss it into a bonfire and drink some beer after the holiday. Then I realized just how much I liked the look of the thing and decided to make structurally more sound. Originally I made the abdomen more like a basket of woven twigs and the legs were just sort of stuck on good enough to keep it from sagging to the ground. When I redid the legs so they would be stronger I had to tear the basket off. Rather than build a new basket I decided on this design for the abdomen. It consists of a lot of short pieces of branches attached to three or four sections of wood with screws and nails and the whole assembly is then attached to the body of the spider. All in all I really like the way this turned out and get quite a few compliments from everyone who sees it (most pizza delivery folks).

After seeing how poorly three LED candles lit this piece I decided to try something I saw on a camping/backpacking video and made a small cooker out of a mint tine, strips of cardboard and some wax. This is what the lantern looked like when I first lit it. After several minutes the fire was blasting out of the face to a point where I was worried about melting the lense in the eye. Unfortunately, the pictures I took of the blast did not come out clearly. I guess you just had to be there to enjoy it.

Personal Quote: I ain't dead yet.
About half an hour ago I wrote the last sentence of the rough draft of my novel. It is finally done! There is a whole lot of work to do before it will be ready for publication, but it feels great to have gotten this far with the rough draft.

I want to thank everyone who has encouraged and supported me while I've been writing. It really helped to know that I had folks rooting for me.
